In this episode, Emma talks with Kate Adair - a filmmaker and vlogger from Glasgow - about transgender political candidates, coming out at work and “people being dicks” The conversation was recorded in the heart of the incredible Buzzcut Festival - a live art and theatre festival that takes place in Govan.
Kate has previously done work with MyGenderation and BBC's The Social. She also does a lot of community work with SQIFF (Scottish Queer International Film Festival) and Lock Up Your Daughters filmmaking. She has been part of filmmaking workshops teaching skills to young trans people allowing them to tell their own stories - something which she is passionate about. She also is a co-founder of Glasgow's only Transgender Swimming group (Seahorses).
